Benefiting Basic Rights Oregon, New Avenues for Youth, and The Bus Project, Portland Monthly's official Pride kick-off party celebrated diversity with glitter, drag queens, LGBT fashion show, live grafitti, and late-night beats from DJ Cazwell, Grammy award-winner DJ Spinderella, Venus X, and more. With a costume contest, cut-out 50 Cent, and the best gay fashion show PDX has ever seen, it was a party not to be missed. Responsibilities included creative direction, marketing and promotion, sponsorship sales and fulfillment, overseeing entertainment, stage, and fashion show team, managing permitting, security, on-site build-out and decor, and overall production.



Sponsors Included: Adidas, Bank of America, Oregon Lottery, Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, KinkFM, Summit Mortgage, Coors Light, Jim Beam Bourbon, Effen Vodka, Car2Go, and Zidell Yards
